Help needed to defeat a bill in PENNSYLVANIA!

The animal rights group, Animal Defenders International is planning a Week of Action in Pennsylvania on November 6-10 to generate constituent support in Pennsylvania for PA SB 248, which would ban “the for-profit display of any animal that traveled in a mobile housing facility in the 15 days preceding the display” (zoos and educational and research activities are exempted).  There has been no action taken on the bill since theSenate Judiciary Committee held a hearing this summer, but ADI is claiming that Chairman Greenleaf has committed to hear the bill again later this year.  Pennsylvania has a two-year legislative session, so bills will carry over to 2018. See Pennsylvania Week of Action (ADI alert).

Please contact the members of the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee 

to let them know you OPPOSE Senate Bill 248.
